We have a Challenge 21 policy on site and our bar staff will always ask for a proof of age ID whenever any customer appears to be under the age of 21. Proof of the attainment of 18 years of age will be required before you are able to buy alcohol or tobacco.
We know it’s a nightmare to have to carry around your photo ID with you all the time, so consider picking up one of our Over 18s wristbands. This is accepted by our bars, cigarette stalls and the supermarkets on site and is available from the Over 18s tent based by Reaper Bridge.
Please note that if there is any doubt on the age of the customer and there is no photo ID to support the age, then they will be refused service. The onus is on the individual to demonstrate unequivocally that they are 18 years old or over and if the individual cannot do so they will not be served. The customer will also be asked for photo ID if the over 18 wristband appears to be tampered with.
The following photo IDs are accepted on site:
1. A passport
2. An EU photocard driving licence
3. A proof of age card bearing a PASS hologram
4. A Ministry of Defence identity card
5. A National Identity card issued by an EU member state.
The opening times for the Over 18s wristband tent will be:
Wednesday - 12 midday – 10pm
Thursday – Saturday 10am – 10pm
Sunday – 10am – 6pm
Please note – it is just as illegal for you to purchase alcohol or tobacco for someone who is under 18, as it is for buying it yourself if you are under 18. You will be evicted from site and may be handed over to the police if you are caught doing either.
